The annual McGazzafest took place over the weekend in Queenstown, New Zealand. The weeken long event honors legendary freerider Kelly McGarry who called Queenstown home and helped raise the profile and accessibility of freeriding in NZ (and beyond). Among the scores of riders who took to the the massive jump line that is Dream Track where two long time Kona riders, Kiwi Nick Dethridge and Aussie transplant Jai Motherwell.
“It is always such a privilege to be out here riding for Kelly. But even more so this year, with the current covid situation, its a privilage to be out here rubbing shoulders with your best mates, riding bikes for the big man.
Kelly would be looking down on all these guys and girls riding Dream track, just so stoked with the progression from everyone. Gone are the days of just a handful of people beiang able to ride Dream Track. The turn out is huge and you can hardly get a spot to ride. Theres no doubt that this is partly down to the legacy Kelly has left in Queenstown, along with all the hard work that @qmtbc and the @kellymcgarryfoundation do.” – Nick Dethridge
